2a. First, that we have fellowship with the Son of God.b. Second, that this fellowship is in His grace.c. Third, how we fellowship in His grace. II. Sermon.A. First, we have fellowship with the Son of God.1. Jesus says to us through John, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyonehears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine withhim, and he with Me” (Rev. 3:20).a. Here, He invites us to fellowship with Him.b. All we need to do is respond to Him – open our hearts and receive Him, andHe will have fellowship with us. 2. If you’re a believer here this morning, this is what the Father brought you into.a. Paul writes, “God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowshipwith His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Cor. 1:9).b. The Father has called you into fellowship with His Son.c. He not only called you to this, but His faithfulness will preserve it.d. He called you into this fellowship that He might consummate His love withyou – that He might give you His love and that He might receive yours: thiscan only happen when we are in communion with His Son. 3. One last thing to note: the communion we have with the Son of God is in Hisoffice as Mediator: it’s with the God-man (Gal. 4:4-5). B. Second, let’s consider that the fellowship we have with Jesus Christ is in His grace.1. This is what our text plainly tells us: “For of His fullness we have all received,and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truthwere realized through Jesus Christ” (John 1:16-17).a. The Ceremonial Law given through Moses could only point to that grace – itcouldn’t provide it.b. But Jesus is full of grace, and in our fellowship, He gives us that grace, andwe receive it: “For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upongrace” (v. 16). 2. We see this also in Paul’s benediction: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, andthe love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all” (2 Cor.13:14; Cf. 2 Thes. 3:18).3. The Father has called us into fellowship with His Son that He mightconsummate His love.4. This fellowship is in Christ’s grace that He might bring this about. C. Third, how do we fellowship in His grace?1. This will take a little time to develop, since it includes everything the Lord givesus through Christ. There are at least three ways grace can be used when it refersto Jesus Christ.
